Diesel Engine Heaters to Eliminate Engine Wear in Western Canada

Without proper equipment in place, extreme outdoor temperatures and bad weather conditions may leave some drivers with no choice but to leave their trucks idling. However, this is a costly solution and increases the amount of emissions produced. To help eliminate engine wear without compromising in-cabin comfort, Eskimo Refrigeration carries diesel engine heaters. With sales and service centres located throughout Western Canada, contact us today for more information or assistance.

Thermo Top C


Protects engine and saves fuel. The compact Thermo Top C water heater pre-heats the engine to the starting temperature. This considerably reduces the load on the engine caused by a cold start and thus increases the life span and operational readiness of the engine. Additionally, the parking heater Thermo Top C protects the environment, as avoiding engine idle run times reduces fuel consumption as well as CO2-emission. Ice and mist-free windows ensure safety right from the start thanks to a clear view.

Product Benefits

  • Engine and passenger compartment pre-heating of 12-V vehicles with original equipment or retrofitting

  • Safer engine start even at low temperatures

  • Fuel savings by avoiding engine idle run times during short idle times

X45 Plus

Proheat X45 Plus is a powerful, diesel-powered engine pre-heating solution for quick and reliable cold weather starting. An integrated pump circulates heated coolant to warm the engine block, making starting easier and reducing start-up engine wear. Proheat X45 Plus features an onboard control panel that displays heater status, while an optional digital timer for the cab adds convenient timer-based starting of the heater. Proheat X45 Plus can also direct heat to the truck cab for driver comfort while reducing fuel costs and emissions from unnecessary engine idling. With more than 20 years in the field, its rugged and field serviceable design has proven reliable in even the most extreme temperatures.


Dual-Purpose Auxiliary Heater

Proheat X45 Plus is powerful enough to supply heat for both engine and driver needs. Engine pre-heating helps eliminate problems with cold-weather starts, allowing drivers to depart faster. With the addition of an optional heat exchanger, Proheat X45 Plus can heat the sleeper cab for added driver comfort. And its low amperage design is a small draw on the starting battery, ensuring it is not excessively drawn down when the heater is used.

Cut Operating Costs
By installing Proheat X45 Plus, fleets and operators can save thousands of dollars each year by eliminating the need to idle the truck’s engine to prevent engine freezing and to provide heat for driver comfort. Engine idling puts unnecessary hours on the engine, increasing engine wear and overall vehicle emissions. Proheat X45 Plus uses substantially less fuel than an idling truck engine while still keeping both the engine and driver warm.

How many hours do your trucks idle for cab comfort and engine pre-heating in a typical year? Since Proheat X45 Plus burns 90% less fuel than a truck engine. Trucks that idle unnecessarily for hundreds of hours will typically pay for a Proheat X45 Plus in about a year.
